All the characters assume that the person manipulating Cayden James would be one of the people currently working with him because it had to have been someone who knows him well. Because the person manipulating him began doing so before his current operation began, their assumption is faulty. The person would have had to have known him (either personally or from a distance) prior to Cayden's current operation so people who knew him before, such as Alena, should be suspects. See more »


Oliver Queen: Who is that?
Felicity Smoak: Facial recognition just picked him up as Karl Iscove, paid assassin.
John Diggle: With a bow and arrow?
Felicity Smoak: A bow and arrow's not his usual M.O., but I'm guessing it was a special request by whoever hired him to kill Cayden's son.
John Diggle: All to set you up. We need to have a conversation with this Iscove, find out who hired him.
Oliver Queen: He's dead.
John Diggle: What?
Felicity Smoak: [Oliver turns to look at her] Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. The assassin was assassinated not long after Owen Post.

Seeing a new side of Oliver
26 March 2018 | by whitearrow-23623See all my reviews

Over the past six years, we've seen Oliver take some pretty bold stances against his adversaries, but his best shining moments have been when the threat hits closer to home, with some of his most memorable being the lengths he went for Thea back in Seasons 3 and 4. Now, it seems like his stance as a father is giving him the same effect, only this time on a more level headed and mature level.

With the challenge he's facing this season, bringing William into the fold on a more permanent basis seems to have a great impact on what keeps him going. What really caught my attention this time around was that even though his father being the Emerald Archer is a bit nerve racking, William has proven himself to be a pretty brave kid (gee, I wonder who he takes after).
